Dear Syracuse Elementary Families,

I am so happy to start my second year with you and hope to be able to get to know you this year. We have such a great group of professionals here to serve your family and provide quality and intentional learning in the safest ways we possibly can. I know many of you are anxious about the start of school during a surge in Covid-19, and so are we. That is why our teachers will be as vigilant as possible in following these practices:

· Handwashing

· Sanitizing surfaces

· Maintaining distances as we can in the classrooms

· Notifying our Covid Aide of students who are displaying symptoms in the classroom

· Grade-level lunches; no common lunch bucket; sanitizing between lunch times

Your child’s health and safety is my number one concern. Please contact the teacher, Assistant Principal King, or me if you have concerns.

We are also happy to tell you that we will soon have 8 Student Houses where our students will make new friends and extend their networks of support as they meet new teachers and staff members. Once a month, we will have a House Lunch (sit with members of your House) and a House Meeting where they will have fun activities with their Houses. Wait for more details as your child learns more about it! Our “Sorting Assembly” will be on September 13!


Mrs. Hammer
